Research interests
As an empirical bioethicist, my work focuses on social justice issues (broadly) and, more specifically, on health disparities and disease prevention among ethnic minority populations. Specific areas of my work have included: race-based disparities in palliative and end-of-life care; the impact of perceived medical discrimination on cancer screening behaviors among ethnic minority adults; disparities in patterns of direct-to-consumer advertising; and, most recently, a community-based participatory research project on pediatric bereavement in partnership with the East Bay Agency for Children Circle of Care Program.

research interests
Our lab studies the underlying neurobiology of autism and other neuro-developmental disorders. We are particularly interested in understanding how electrical activity and calcium signals control the development of the brain and how this is altered in children with autism spectrum disorders. We are also developing new tools to study and repair the developing brain.

Member, Bio-X

Member, Cancer Center

research interests
There are two major areas of focus in the laboratory. First, we are interested in Epstein Barr Virus-mediated mechanisms of immune evasion with particular focus on resistance to cell death receptor pathways of apoptosis in EBV B cell lymphomas, the characterization of the human T cell response to EBV infected B cells and effects of immunosuppressive drugs on growth and survival of EBV B cell lymphomas. The second area of study addresses tolerance induction in solid organ transplantation. In particular we are examining the generation and characterization of regulatory T cells in allogeneic responses and the role of alternate co-stimulatory molecules in alloreactivity.

Research interests
We study neural mechanisms of visual-motor integration and the neural basis of cognition (e.g. attention). We study the activity of single neurons in visual and motor structures within the brain, examine how perturbing that activity affects neurons in other brain structures, and also how it affects the perceptual and motor performance of behaving animals.
